Randomness and a tent

My granddaughter needed a teepee for a school project so Grandma made a tent.

I've wanted to make this doll tent since I bough the pattern and this was the perfect excuse. I didn't make it fancy since it was supposed to be a primitive Indian dwelling.

I didn't have to purchase anything I had all the materials. The fake suede fabric was gifted.
Front view, I used some cording that I've had forever for the ties.

I added a little trim on the side and back. Again I just used some random fabric scraps. For the base I glued some batting to a piece of cardboard and sewed on rings to tie it down.

She also asked for some leg warmers, who knew these would make a comeback. I found a free pattern on Raverly and just modified it. I think the pom-poms could have been smaller but they came out cute.

She's modeling them and it seems that her pet rabbit Mr. Bun buns approves.

I made a pair of fingerless mitts for my Grandson for Christmas, I've made so many pairs of these I don't even need to use a pattern. I held two strands of yarn together so they would be extra warm. 

I also made him a robe for Christmas. I've had this space panda fleece forever, he picked it I was going to make a quillow but since he already has one I decided to make him a robe. He loved it.

I hope everyone has an amazing year.
